got worse for the united states overseas today as anti-u.s. protests over the film that denigrates the prophet, muhammed, spread to nearly 20 countries now. the violence has erupted in what is the cradle of spring, and in benghazi, the attack that killed four americans, including the first ambassador to die in decades. this was a somber day at andrew's air force base as the four americans came home, as the leaders of their government looked on. it is where we begin our coverage tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> reporter: to the mournful tones of "nearer my god to thee," the caskets came home, four public servants, arriving to the embrace of family and the secretary of state, brought together in grief. >> today, we bring home four americans who gave their lives for our country, and our values. >> reporter: four americans, the president said, who knew the danger and accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they lived it. >> glenn dougherty never shied from adventure, he believed in his life he could make a difference, by the calling as a navy s

for the united states and for its relationship with that new government that is forming in libya? i've spoken to a senior administration official here who says that officials in libya are cooperating right now with u.s. officials. of course, this has taken a bit of a political turn as well, matt. president obama in his initial statement, while condemning the attacks, also said that he condemned all sorts of religious intolerance. mitt romney put out a statement, i'm going to read it to you, in which he said it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. in response the obama campaign put out this statement, matt. we are shocked that at a time when the united states of america is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in libya governor romney would choose to launch a political attack, so even while they are dealing with this unfolding situation, politics still playing a role here, but, again, we are expecting president obama to address the nation fr
